Glengoyne unveils THE FIRST FILL 25 YEARS travel retail exclusive

22nd January 2014

Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has unveiled a special 25yo bottling, matured in exclusively 100% first fill sherry casks. 

This unique malt will be EXCLUSIVE to global travel retail and is the perfect addition to the stunning Glengoyne travel retail range which includes the Cask Strength, 15yo Distillers Gold, 18yo and 21yo malts. The heavy weight moulded bespoke bottle with engraved oak/metal cork stopper is presented in an oak wood case and card outer.

Commenting on the new malt, Andy Lane, Travel Retail Director for Ian Macleod Distillers, said:  “The Glengoyne 25yo is an extremely special malt. Matured for 25 years in 100% prestigious first fill European oak sherry casks and bottled at 46%ABV, it is a perfect balance of fine oak, traditional skills and barley dried by air, never peat, resulting in a flavour of complex spices and rich toffee with a finish that lingers long after the final drop.”

Glengoyne is owned by one of Scotland’s leading, independent, family-owned distillers, Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd. The new 25yo expression has been crafted from only the finest 100% first fill sherry casks within Glengoyne’s traditional dunnage warehouses. Unlike most other single malt whiskies, Glengoyne dries its malted barley using only warm air resulting in this extremely subtle yet complex malt where all the delicate flavours are freely expressed. 

 The Glengoyne Distillery - highly regarded as Scotland’s most beautiful distillery in Dumgoyne near Loch Lomond – runs its stills slower than any other distillery, supporting the claim that Glengoyne genuinely is “Worth the Wait”. 

Travel retail price €375.00/GBP300/USD470.00. For more information, please visit
